    Barbacoa is not a method of grilling something over an open flame. Traditional Mexican barbacoa is different. It essentially steams and smokes the meat at the same time resulting in a moist and flavorful meat.

    A cauldron of hot water is placed in a pit 3 feet deep with hot coals in the bottom. Then a grill is placed on top of the cauldron and meat that has been wrapped in maguey or banana leaves is placed there. Vegetables, beans and spices are sometimes added to the pot for a soup. The pit is then sealed and covered with damp earth.

    The traditional meat used is either a cow or goats head. Nowadays "barbacoa" can refer to any meat that is just slow cooked and tender. I opt for the "anything other than" option icon_lol.gif
